Hmm....what about the ASRock Z87 PRO4 ?
I see there is around a $70 markup above newegg/amazon.com so I don't know what to suggest rolleyes.gif

Not really $70 on most items, but a few would be around that kind of mark up.

Could I ask, with 4 motherboard company's how are these different, I don't really see any major changes between the brands.

I can get that board for $145, so it's in my price range. But I'm yet to get any real answers pushing towards the one board.

basically between manufacturers a lot is personal preference and there's past performance as well as customer service policies. for cheaper boards gigabyte/ asus/ asrock has the best track record msi really does not. they are on the up and up though their Mpower boards are decent but out of your price range.

Asus lately has had a very bad track record with rma's and poor customer service so lately many have been shying away from them plus i don't like their gold themes kookoo.gif

i would try to find a deal on a board maybe on sale. aussie mark ups are horrible unfortunately so every board normally recommended as budget isn't really budget for you. Really I recommend the UDH4 even though it's a tad out of your price range... with cheap boards comes poor overclocking as a general rule. the udh4 is a great compromise between budget and performance/ enthusiast.

I just called the store that I'm buying every part on, so about $1000 in total. I asked them if the can price match or bundle, they didn't seem interested in either of those options, and It's one of the biggest stores in Australia.

Sales are a little bit hard here due to the price of shipping in general, so I'm driving about 300km to pick all my parts up. I guess if I find something really marked now I'd get it shipped, but being new I haven't seen any yet.

Yeah, prices here aren't the best, I got my Z77x-D3H on release for $155 i think locally, PCCG wanted $150 at the time so it made no sense to go with them.

@OP You're going to just have to suck it up and find a few more $$$ if you want a decent board, you won't beat PCCG and basically no stores here do "Bundle deals", unless it's on sale (Usually old stuff)
